I don't believe there is a way to do this within Gluster itself, 
geo-replication is only a one-way solution by design.

If you can deal with asynchronous sync between the geo sites, you could 
use something like unison to synchronize two independent gluster 
volumes. This is obviously messy since it introduces separate software 
into the mix which could require it's own maintenance.
